Fake 2015 1 KILO Proof Panda? From ebay Poland
« on: March 24, 2016, 05:56:29 PM »
I just got this 2015 Proof Panda medal in. It was sealed, and, cut seal and weighed in short at 31.585 Troy Ounces, and 982.32 Grams..should be 1,000 grams, and 32.15 Troy. Any word around about these being fakes, please advise. Here is the sale, and, in feedback, has 3 negatives for fakes. I know..I figured I'm protected by ebay..was hoping for the real thing. The low price was my first hint, as most  want $1,200 on up for these. Thanks for your time

There is no denomination on the coin, lead plated with silver, it is worth $10 at most as novelty item.

Lessons:
1) Don't buy silver pandas on eBay, even dbl sealed pandas, unless you REALLY know what you are doing
2) Silver pandas with no denomination and course fur like the one you bought are always fakes
3) Any panda selling at auction for 1/2 or its fair value is to be assumed a fake
4)Buy from reputable dealers on eBay. Ask who those dealers are, or just buy your items here FOR LESS.

Good luck

Got it..thanks..believe me, lessons learned! I'm sure you all have read about the pamp suisse fake 1 Oz gold bars, sealed, that hit the Florida Fun Show in Jan...(write up on Coin World)...it's a JUNGLE out there, eh? It's to the point where, ALL my raw expensive gold coins I have accumulated over time, will be sent in for grading/slabbing...it would be too easy for a crook to cry "not as described", replace my real coin with a fake, send it back, and get a refund. Yes, this could happen with a slabbed coin, but, it would be fairly easy to photograph the cheap label, and fake holder, or, altered holder cut marks. Bottom line...I use a unique invisible(almost) micro-non-removeable marking system on expensive slabs, only I know about, and, photograph for record-keeping...it's my own "safety mark"....sad, but, ya gotta do what ya gotta do these days.

I learned dont buy pandas without any yuan domination written on it although there are some exceptions like the 1982, munich, and select other pandas.  I really like those kilo silver pandas.
